Glad hubby is doing well Joyce. A relief for you all  

The 'midge' leaves me alone on the whole, so I'm quite lucky. Don't think the forecast is too promising for the next few days, so you may not get much done outdoors. 

Can anyone advise what plant this is

Sorry lisey - we're being very unhelpful - unlike everyone else who's ID ing the plant. 

I agree that it looks like Hazel though. I initially thought Beech, but the shape isn't quite right  

Planting a large Wildlife Pond

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 18:12

I'm going to disagree with others and say you can have fish. In a pond that size, there's still plenty of wildlife, especially if you feed them. At my last house we inherited a very large, established pond that had two very large Koi and several Golden Orfe (and a random trout that must have come in with a plant at some time) - until someone stole them. Tons of wildlife in the pond. Management is the key factor.

Who's taking a riddle in a pot? Honestly.....

I can't keep up any more so I'll take the easy way out and say I hope everyone is ok and anyone having a rough time is having a better day  

Lousy here too Hosta. It just scraped into double figures for a little while. Wet and miserable, although yesterday was more spectacularly wet. It's my fault for getting an outside tap. 

Plants were needing it though.

I now have an 'area' under the window of the new extension which I can plant up ( after I sort it all of course) South facing and plenty of wall space, so I will have a hot border I think. Bench will also go there, not that I'll sit on it very often.

Chicken fidget.

That's the answer to the last question anyway.

I have no answers for the others although this was the first series ....

Verbena Bonariensis

I find then fairly easy from seed if sown at this time of year, but they take very easily from cuttings too.

Evening all. It's been persisting here most of the day. We needed the rain though. Not often I can say that! I fed the grass just before the building work started. I think if it hadn't been so cold and dry it would be about three feet high by now  

I've steered clear of that thread KEF. I don't care for the argy bargy and I don't see the point of debating it either. I've yet to hear any hard facts from either side of the divide so I can't make an informed comment. 

Thought Marcella was poor. Badly executed, too many loose ends and red herrings, and some characters poorly drawn.  Her character, in particular, not explained well enough -  what did she really get up to and why? What did the chap with the 'illegal' brother have to do with it all? Disappointing when it was from the creator of The Bridge which is superb.

You need a deer fence lily. They're not cheap either....they're deer/dear....get it?

My spam folder is now full of notifications - despite the fact my default setting for them all is 'off'!  

And that's since I've updated it again.
